hello!
i am a good tokai fan in japan and i always wonder how tokai is loved
in the foreign countries. i heard that tokai is well loved in uk but not
too well in usa yet. i understand usa is the gibson/fender country so
they dont like the copies/replicas much. how is the situation in 2015?
tell me the truth please.
thank you!

Yeah man, for all the US talk about free markets and trade they sure like to control some things as much as they can...

There aren't many other products where another company is not allowed to come along and say "I can make a better one of those" or "I can do it more efficiently than you" and have a go. Almost anything you can think of, there are multiple players making the same goods and vying for sales - those are competitive markets.

Hey Ramen Man

What do you know about http://www.tokaiusa.com/ ?

How is Tokai regarded in Japan? Lots of love or would everybody rather have a Gibson?
